Julie Gross Gelfand, APR, EVP Harrison Leifer DiMarco PR.
I have known Ann as a research pro for a number of years and as a Board colleague at IABC for one. The longer I know her, the deeper my professional respect and personal affection grows. Ann did a benchmark study for a national client of ours several years ago that is still guiding their marketing today. She really knows her stuff. And she can write! Not many people know how to put out a mean newsletter - Ann does. Let it also be said that Ann is a true team player. She takes responsibility and delivers... two qualities I greatly admire in my colleagues and friends. I recommend Ann without hesitation to anyone needing the services of a true professional researcher

Ann is very experienced with a wide range of research techniques. She gave us results that proved not only useful but insightful, even predictive.
I hired ADM Marketing to conduct focus groups on behalf of a client who needed to understand its prospective customer base. ADM provided astute, actionable insights that contributed directly to the business planning process and helped form the basis of many subsequent early-stage decisions. As ADM's principal, Ann is a font of knowledge and a delightful collaborator. I look forward to the next opportunity to engage ADM and to benefit from Ann's seemingly boundless wisdom.

She gets right to the key issues and always looks at all possible angles before recommending a strategy.. Ann was instrumental in our implementation of "research for ink". For three consecutive years, Ann managed our annual FoodTRENDS survey with co-sponsor, American Express. Most recently, she played a critical role in our first annual Industrial Small Business Outlook for Thomas Regional Directory Company and MasterCard International. This survey was the largest nationwide survey of small businesses, with 5,000 business owners responding."
